Taiwanese manufacturer Asus is launching a connected device in the US that can help detect the cleanliness of fruit and vegetables before they are consumed by analyzing the quality of the water it is washed in. The device detects any impurities when submerged in the washing water, including pesticides and other pollutants.
An accompanying mobile app (Android and iOS compatible) records the data collected, which can then be shared with other users.
The device works automatically as soon as it is immersed in water. The Asus PureGo uses a multitude of dynamic algorithms to identify pesticides and other contaminants in the water. When the light on the module is red or orange, the fruit and vegetables need to be washed more.
